different but looks like it will cross the upper delaware bay and looks a little faster. looks like it will make landfall maybe 10:00, 11:00 tonight. we sped it up just a little bit. then it's going to cross northern maryland and across i- 83, maybe around hunt valley as we go through the overnight. tomorrow afternoon at 2:00, it will be in south central pennsylvania. so tonight into tomorrow and it may be more like 8:00 a.m. or 8:00 p.m. to 10:00 a.m. or noon that we have the worst of the weather now with this track and areas north of town winds could be a little bit stronger because they're a little closer to the center. we're still looking at 60 mile an hour winds around the center of circulation here tomorrow afternoon. then a turn to the north as we head into wednesday. finally by thursday morning it will be up here trying to get toward watertown and pulling away. but we have a good couple of days -- well, bad couple of days of heavy rain and probably damaging wind, especially later on tonight into tomorrow morning. the heavy rains have been across the eastern shore, the delmar

on the delaware bay. it is pretty deserted as we pulled in this morning. any one who will be back in their homes will be heartbroken in this tiny little town. there's only one road in and out of this area. evacuation orders were in effect. from what we understand at least half of the residents did heed those warnings. if you take a look at what sandy left behind they will be glad they did. debris is strewn every where. there's a home on the backside here that you can't quite see. it looks like a wall of water slammed into it and blew it open. almost looks like it exploded from the inside. this white house swept off of its foundation. this scene is repeated up and down this road that is muddy and still very wet and people's belongings strewn all over their power lines down propane tanks down. enormous mess. they knew it was going to be a vulnerable area but as people look back at this it is going to be tough. >> governor crist tat this said yesterday was a day of sorrow today will be a day the building will begin. the sorrow will last for quite a while. >>> super storm sandy bringing blizzard con

unfortunately for landfall across southern new jersey, perhaps the bay of delaware. we'll be feeling the effects all day today and all day tomorrow. it will be slow to weaken because it is a hybrid. it is not just deriving its energy from the ocean waters. it is deriving its energy from the contrast between cold and warm air. it will keep itself going even when it moves inland later this evening. here are some facts for us, some headlines and remember before of a high wind warping which goes into effect at 8:00 this morning through 8:00 tomorrow night. i mentioned the wind gusting to 65 or 70. the gusts up to about 70 later this evening and check on the your rain totals. five to 10 inches. haven't had a whole lot of time to mention the mount taupe snow but parts of west virginia, maybe western maryland, up to two feet. still some question mark about that. it looks like it is all systems go for a big snow event out to the west. 54 for your daytime high. the wind gusting to 70. the wind will get going later today and tonight. >> we'll be prepared. thank you. >> time now to check in with julie wrig

is making a left turn. we're looking at hurricane- force winds in delaware as we get into monday. after it rolls through it gets into south central pa. this is now tuesday night, 8:00. we still have 50 miles per hour winds. it's kind of ironic and a little bit different. we talk about hurricanes losing strength when they make landfall, but it will strengthen a little bit as it makes landfall and shortly thereafter before it finally weakens and tracks off into southern quebec eventually. i think this tracks a little too quick. i think it will slow down and sit in south central pa for a couple of days. maybe wednesday and begin to leave on thursday. by tomorrow morning winds will be buffeting everybody east of i-95. good news, hurricane-force winds offshore. then we get into monday afternoon. now we have tropical storm force winds back to winchester all the way back down into the carolinas. now we're seeing winds up to 73 miles per hour buffeting ocean city and bethany. by monday 7:00 we have tremendous winds, almost hurricane-force winds in southern maryland and the bay and hurricane-for
